Today we have prepared for you 5 tips that will help you get flat belly in 5 days. And as a matter of fact, no hard exercises are included. How cool is that? So, check these tips that will help you have flat belly in 5 days.
#1 Chew, chew, chew
When I was a child I was told that I have to chew every single bite I have at least 20 time. I do not remember, but it could have been even more. This way my stomach would have been able to digest the food more easily. Well, I tried it, did not like it and gave up. Now that I am older, I know how important it is to chew your food carefully.
You need to help your stomach and lower intestines by chewing the food you have carefully. You need to do this job for them because they are not going to do it. This way when the food is not chewed well it may cause not only bloating, but also gaining weight.
Another thing you need to have in mind when we talk about chewing is that when you drink juices, like smoothies, you also need to “chew” them. Basically you should not pour the liquid into your mouth and throat, but move it around your mouth for some time. Let the saliva get into the mixture and help you digest it better. This will also help you against bloating.
#2 Do not eat fruit after main meals
People are used to knowing that fruits are healthy and one can eat them whenever they like since they have a lot of vitamins. It is true that they are healthy, but there are some rules you also need to follow when it comes to eating fruit and not gain weight or feel bloated. You need to have fruit alone and never after heavy main meals.
The reason for this is that it takes time for heavy foods to be digested while fruits are fast. Their way needs to be free in order to be digested properly. If your stomach is already full and you have fruits, they will get stuck in your stomach. They will not be digested and will ferment in your body.
This will also affect your liver because when fruits ferment, they create alcohol and gases. And as we all know, alcohol is very caloric and all of this fermenting of fruits in your stomach will result in the creation of fats. That is why it is best to have fruits in the morning for breakfast.
#3 Forget about late night dinner and snacks
One of the worst things you could do to your body is to feed it late at night. This is because at night your body is already prepared to have some rest and no food that it needs to digest. In the morning you could also feel bloated and uncomfortable.
If you want to help your body digest food properly, thus gain less weight and do not feel bloated, you can have food according to the best time for your body. And this is between 12 o’clock and 16 o’clock.
If you are going to eat some heavy meal, then do it at this time of the day, during the rest of the day, it is best to stick to salads and other kinds of foods that are fast to digest. It is also best to avoid eating completely after 20 o’clock. If you do, your body will not be able to digest it and this will result into gaining weight.
#4 Do not eat starches and proteins together
Two of my favorite foods are meat and potatoes and I love having them together for main meals. However, this is not the best thing to do when it comes to eating properly. This is because they do not go together. The enzymes needed for starch and proteins to be digested are different.
That is why it makes it harder for your body to do this job. It is similar to tip number 2 – eating fruits alone. If yo do not eat starches and proteins separately, they will create alcohol in your body leading to weight gaining.
